The Inter­na­tion­al Cen­ter for Forestry and For­est Indus­try (ICCFI) was estab­lished in 1995 on the basis of St. Peters­burg State For­est Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty (SPb­S­F­TU) by the Order of the State Com­mit­tee for High­er Edu­ca­tion of Rus­sia. The cen­ter is part of the sys­tem of inter­na­tion­al coop­er­a­tion of Russ­ian uni­ver­si­ty education

The purpose of the Center

The pur­pose of the Cen­ter is to devel­op inter­na­tion­al edu­ca­tion­al, sci­en­tif­ic, and tech­ni­cal coop­er­a­tion, as well as entre­pre­neur­ial activ­i­ties with edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions and firms of for­eign coun­tries with entry into the world edu­ca­tion, sci­ence, busi­ness and joint devel­op­ment of sci­en­tif­ic and tech­ni­cal products.

Field of activity

The main areas of activ­i­ty of the Cen­ter are the fol­low­ing branch­es of the for­est sec­tor: forestry and gar­den­ing (includ­ing envi­ron­men­tal issues); for­est exploita­tion; wood chem­istry; mechan­i­cal tech­nol­o­gy of wood; machines and tech­nolo­gies in forestry and tim­ber indus­try; eco­nom­ics of the forestry sec­tor; infor­ma­tion sys­tems and com­mu­ni­ca­tions in the for­est sector

The main activities of the Center

In the field of education:
• study, analy­sis and assess­ment of the sys­tems used in the world in the pre-uni­ver­si­ty (schools, col­leges, tech­ni­cal schools), uni­ver­si­ty (uni­ver­si­ties, acad­e­mies, insti­tutes) and post­grad­u­ate (advanced train­ing cen­ters) edu­ca­tion of for­est spe­cial­ists. Devel­op­ment and par­tic­i­pa­tion in the imple­men­ta­tion of inter­na­tion­al train­ing pro­grams for for­est specialists;

• cre­ation of spe­cial­ized cur­ric­u­la, train­ing and edu­ca­tion­al pro­grams for stu­dents and spe­cial­ists of the indus­try to study advanced equip­ment and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly tech­nolo­gies from the lead­ing for­eign companies;

In the field of science:
• involve­ment of Russ­ian and for­eign sci­en­tists and engi­neers for joint research and devel­op­ment, orga­ni­za­tion of large-scale research and devel­op­ment work and inter­na­tion­al projects;
• orga­ni­za­tion of inter­na­tion­al sci­en­tif­ic and tech­ni­cal con­fer­ences and sem­i­nars and pub­li­ca­tion of sci­en­tif­ic papers in Russ­ian and for­eign sources.

In the field of pro­duc­tion and com­mer­cial activities:
• estab­lish­ing busi­ness ties between Russ­ian and for­eign entre­pre­neurs for the devel­op­ment of mutu­al­ly ben­e­fi­cial entre­pre­neur­ial activ­i­ties in the dif­fer­ent branch­es of the for­est sec­tor.
